    Hi, I want to start steaming fortnite and rocket league. My budget is £1400, would you say this build is ok. I could save money by dropping down to the 2600x, but I'm not sure whether it's good enough. I don't want to have to upgrade my CPU for a few years. Also, is there anything else I could change to save money?

    You can easily get away with a 500W powersupply, with room to spare, otherwise everything seems on point. If your shop can update the BIOS for you, you could also get a cheaper B350 board, but unsure of actual prices over there.

    I did originally have a 550W but someone said that 650W would last longer if needed with future builds.

    Most people go overboard on their PSU thinking they will buy another 2nd GPU or some crap. I have been guilty of this for years. Since you are going full ATX, I agree that a B350/B450 would be just as good since they have the vrm overhead.

    If prices are good, get the 2700x. Otherwise, get a dirt cheap 1600 for now and then a 2700x when you really need it.
